Marotta: ‘I’ve never experienced such an emotion – The journey of this Inter team is not even halfway’


Inter CEO Beppe Marotta reflected on the clubs Scudetto victory and looked ahead to the summer: “Our transfer market must be highly creative.” The Nerazzurri clinched the title on Monday with a win over Milan in the derby, but celebrated properly after their 2-0 victory over Inter on Sunday. Speaking to Sky Sport Italia (via Gazzetta dello Sport), Marotta touched on the importance of this Scudetto and what it means to him:

“What a great emotion, here lies the essence of Inter. These fans represent a huge part of the city of Milan; it’s an unforgettable day. I’ve won some titles, but I’ll never forget this day,” Marotta expressed.

Marotta’s sentiments extended beyond the immediate celebration, delving into the philosophy underpinning Inter’s success. “Often, it’s imagined that clubs must be wealthy and extravagant in the transfer market,” the Nerazzurri executive remarked. “I don’t share this view. The first thing that matters is the sense of belonging, along with a great work ethic. We must choose players with a sense of belonging, humility, and the courage to achieve ambitious results. Planning means valorizing resources.”

Reflecting on the festivities, Marotta emphasized the unparalleled emotion of the moment. “Never experienced such an emotion,” he underscored. “I’ve only seen something like this with the Treble, but on TV.” Looking ahead, Marotta focused on Inter’s future trajectory. “This cycle hasn’t even reached its halfway point; there’s no situation causing anxiety. There are no players nearing the end of their contracts. There are no departures on the horizon. Everyone wants to stay, and we want to confirm these players, including those mentioned (Lautaro and Barella).”

Marotta also discussed Inter’s approach to the transfer market, particularly in light of competition from powerhouses like Manchester City and Real Madrid. “To counter City and Real? Our ideas complement other values. Our market must be highly creative,” Marotta asserted. “In recent years, we’ve demonstrated the courage to change; we changed 12 players in August, which is no small feat. It means having the courage to change and not being afraid of criticism. Interisti have great passion; when you sell, it seems like you’re dismantling what they want, but that’s not the case. We are strong regardless of who we buy and sell,” he concluded.
